Somewhere over the rainbow

If you are looking for a treasure, it is unlikely you will find it at the foot of a rainbow. A better lead might be to check out Audemars Piguet’s display flaunting the shimmering beauty of the new Royal Oak Frosted Gold Double Balance Wheel Openworked. Topped by a bezel set with 32 baguette-cut sapphires (2.24 carats) individually cut and carefully aligned to form a gradient in all the colors of the rainbow, this model stands out as a jewel of aesthetic and technical sophistication. But if the surface of the finely hammered white gold case and bracelet sparkling like sunlit snow is not enough to dazzle you, you will doubtless be utterly convinced by a visual immersion into the mysteries of its skeletonized 3132 caliber. The latter features two balance wheels and two balance springs assembled on the same axis, a patented mechanism that considerably improves the movement’s precision and stability. The other side of the watch provides a chance to observe the steady oscillations of this mechanical heart whose golden hue makes a striking contrast with the rest of the movement. A truly glittering show to be admired through all its multiple facets.
